Alexander Kovelenov (AlexKowel) added a comment to D5659: Eevee: Shadow map refactor.

The new shadows are much simpler to use but really lack quality of the more advanced ESM technique. I'm afraid some people would say that you're deliberately reducing the quality of EEVEE because you've got money from Epic Games ;)

Thanks for this review and approval. This code is very important because it allows us to continue our work on Blend4Web addon interface.

Alexander Kovelenov (AlexKowel) added a comment to T44461: Crash and file corruption after calc_normals_split, calc_tessface execution..

Thank you for your help. By using custom Blender build and simple script we have discovered approx. 10 corrupted scenes. Now we are looking for solution to fix them. Anyway, is it possible to perform (implement) an automatic validation for loaded/saved data in the future?

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately the problem is not just with the single corrupted file. Some of Blend4Web demos are affected too. In Blend4Web SDK we have hundreds of files, so it would be very helpful to have some method to know if the file is corrupted or not, and another method to fix the issue. Our guys will look at this in details, but I fear some really bad things just have happened.

This simply means that the Absolute node was broken!

Alexander Kovelenov (AlexKowel) added a comment to D899: Gamma node support for Blender Internal.

The idea behind this is not just to improve the Blender Internal (GLSL) node system, but also eliminate the gap between it and the Cycles nodes. So maybe it will be possible to merge them together in the future?
